Deepest Sympathy

Yesterday I found out that a dear friend of ours passed away early in the morning of July 4. As soon as I heard I wanted to get a card made for Jan and her family, letting them know they are in our thoughts and prayers, and we are here for them if they need us. This card was very easy to create, but then theĀ  Ranger 3-D Botanical Texture Plate makes a gorgeous card.

I embossed a rectangle of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White with the embossing folder and gently ink blended the raised surfaces with Distress Oxide Antique Linen.

For the sentiment I die cut the word “Sympathy” using the matching dies for Avery Elle’s With Sympathy stamp set out of Couture Creations Gold Matte Cardstock. I cut a strip of Paper Accents Ivory Vellum to fit the die cut and then stamped the secondary sentiment with Memento Luxe Rich Cocoa. I wrapped the vellum around the embossed rectangle and adhered it to the back using Scotch Tape.

The card front was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase K made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive and the card was done.
